EU starch producers are proud to renew their firm commitment to continuously improve safety practices and to achieve a safer working environment, through their contribution to the 4th exercise of the Starch Europe Safety Programme. The Starch Europe Safety Programme, launched in 2014, recognises the best performing EU starch plants in terms of reducing workplace accidents. This showcases the dedication of companies to maintain efforts to reduce the risk of accidents occurring, through constant exchange of experience and good practices.

The Starch Europe Safety Programme grants two types of awards:

The year award – is awarded to plants which registered no employee lost workday cases involving days away from work for the calendar year, and no employee and no non-employee workplace fatalities for the calendar year.

The million hour award – is awarded to plants which registered 1 million consecutive employee hours without an employee lost workday case and without a workplace-related fatality of an employee or non-employee during that period.

Data is collected on a quarterly basis by PWC from companies participating on a voluntary basis. The collection of this data started from 1 July 2014. PWC ensures the validity and consistency of the data provided and reports on eligible plants for each award.

38 of the 75 starch plants in the EU represented by Starch Europe’s 26 member companies, participated in the safety award scheme from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.

Starch Europe is delighted to announce the following eligible companies to the two Award categories:
